Introducing to our customers our new vendor, Homestead Furniture, an Amish Furniture Maker from Ohio
We are always trying to discover and introduce to our customers vendors that combine solid tradition, creativity, innovation and artistry to craft furniture that will endure generations of use. It is also important to us and our customers that our vendors use green practices in their hand-tooled custom construction and delivery. One such vendor is a company from Ohio called Homestead. It is one of the largest Amish-owned furniture businesses in Ohio. In the past, Amish Outlet & Gift Shop only carried furniture made by the Amish masters from Pennsylvania.

We fell in love with the charm and elegance of the Homestead furniture and our discriminating customers enthusiastically approved our initial introduction of furniture made by the Ohio furniture makers.
Homestead offers a broad variety of styles that appeal to buyers who prefer traditional Amish designs and to more adventurous, often younger, buyers who like a little more affordable, still well-made furniture that has “character”. That is why in addition to using wood species traditionally used by the Amish masters – oak, cherry, maple, elm and walnut, Homestead uses reclaimed oak, elm and walnut wood harvested from old barns and other objects. Homestead also uses Quarter-Sawn White Oak, a special cut of the wood that minimizes cupping, splitting, and shrinkage and showcases the stunning medullary rays (AKA ray fleck) of white oak timber which gives it “antique” look.
Having been selling Amish furniture for the last 25+ years, we have discovered that our savvy customers today look for versatility and style, quality and value, durability and functionality, and they will only buy items that exactly meet their preferences. That is why personalization is another important factor in our vendor selection.
